(WIAT) — A  new dating app is using an artificial intelligence “wingman” to help daters find potential love connections. Helper, “Hootie” helps navigate you through the world of online dating on a new app called icebrkr.

The app was developed in part by Kevin Murray of North Attleboro. Murray worked for a decade as a dating coach, and now he and his team employ artificial intelligence to help give users suggestions as to how to set up a profile and interact with each other. 

The app uses human validation to approve or reject profiles.
